The Apostles Creed is a summary confession of vital Christian doctrines used liturgically throughout the Western church.

It speaks of the history of the Creed, provides an overview of its statements, and focuses on the importance of its doctrines for today. Exposition of the Apostles Creed, by The Rev.

James Dodds, D. From: International Standard Bible Encyclopedia Vol. Author: James Orr. The Apostles Creed. The Oldest Creed: The Apostles Creed is the oldest creed, and lies at the basis of most others.

Though not, as the long-current legend of its origin affirmed, the direct work of the Apostles, it has its roots in apostolic times, and embodies, with much. The story that the Twelve met and composed an Apostles Creed is a pious fiction.

But by the 2 nd century there was a rule of faith or a canon of truth believed and taught by the Church, and inherited from the Apostles.

The apostles had a summary collection of the points of Christian religion which they taught, and also delivered to others to teach by; consisting of two heads, faith and love; as may appear by Paul's exhortation to Timothy, wishing him to keep the pattern of wholesome words; which he had heard of him, in faith and love, which is in Christ Jesus (2 Tim.

There was fluidity evident in the exact wording of orthodox affirmations evident in the various localized confessions of faith. But that variability was not present in the orthodox articles.
